An attempt at a world record hopscotch jump fell short in 2014 but still drew a crowd. View the video, below (Image: Jackson Commons)

A 2.9-mile course hopscotch connected the Central District again Saturday in the return of  community event to “spread fun” through the neighborhood. The second annual Hopscotch CD welcomed the neighborhood to walk or hop along the path from Jackson & 28th to Union & 23rd.

Along the route, numerous businesses and community organizations set up stands and gave out free treats to the hopscotchers. There were also lemonade stands, art shows, and book sales along the way. The end of the route at 23rd and Union awarded jumpers with food stalls, a pet adoption bus, and a beer garden with local bands playing into the evening. If the kids were not tired of jumping by the end, a bouncy house was there to finish them off.

Organizers haven’t said for sure but sounded enthusiastic about the event returning for a third edition in 2015. With this year’s world record attempt falling a little short, there’s added incentive to jump in again next year.
